a must see for lovers of Pierre Dac
27 November 2007 | by See all my reviews

A comedy of little cinematographic interest but an interesting document on french radio in the preTV era, how it was made and how important it was for the public. Allows to see radio stars of the time in action, some of them famous screen and stage actors, like Raymond Souplex or Claude Dauphin, and some radio shows such as a very funny and well taken trial parody starring the great actress Marguerite Moreno, prosecuted for dealing shares of the Tour Eiffel and other public monument to naive investors. But the gem of this film is certainly the great humorist Pierre Dac appearing as president of the "Club des Loufoques" (crazies) and organizer of wild treasure hunts in which people had to bring a list of ill-assorted objects to the radio hall. Great to see him at his acme (though he was around 46 at the time) and amazing resemblance with Harpo Marx in some face expressions.
